Last Thursday, as the sun beat down some much needed rays, Simon, Leo and Debs took a little jaunt down to Marazion for some post-design work catch ups.
A woven coastal paradise of contemporary pursuits and quintessential cornish heritage presented itself as families played on the beach, and sipped wine (juice for the kids) on the terrace of the bar overlooking St Michaels Mount. While the tide slowly ebbed its way out revealing the famed cobbled causeway from the mainland across to the Mount we took the opportunity to saunter leisurely across, only paddling for the briefest of moments.
Our new client, the Island Cafe at the base of the mount, was just shutting her doors after a busy day so whilst we missed the delicious sounding menu we very much enjoyed the view from the garden back towards the mainland and Marazion town. It was great to see the logo and branding we designed for the Island Cafe being used so well. The signs looked fantastic for their setting, blending in perfectly with the ethos of both the cafe and the Mount itself.
We lingered for a while waiting for a hint of the mythical Giant, but alas he was obviously enjoying the sun in the garden on the other side of the island.
After absorbing the view for a while we slowly took ourselves back across the causeway (no need for paddling this time) and stopped for a few photos of Leo and the prints he has created depicting the Mount.
We arrived back just in time to take up our invitation to attend the private viewing at The Summerhouse Gallery of the new show 'Where have all the song birds gone?' featuring the incredibly talented Maggie O'Brien. We were delighted to design the catalogues, posters, invitations and sculpture cards for the exhibition.
With the exhibition in place until the end of May we utterly recommend a visit to see the artwork for yourself.
Maggie's art is illuminating with both meaning and emotion, and you can't help but be moved by her poignant journey through this body of work. A video of the inspiration behind her work can be seen here.
A couple of complementary glasses of bubbly later from the lovely ladies at the Summerhouse, and some very thought provoking discussions with other guests, we tottered off for a team meeting over some nibbles before calling it a night.
